ChatGPT for iPhone and iPad Can Now Read Responses Out Loud

OpenAI has announced a new Read Aloud feature for its official ChatGPT app for iPhone and iPad that allows users to have the chat bot read responses out loud in one of five voice options.

In the app, tap and hold the chat bot's text response, and then tap Read Aloud. You can also play, pause, or rewind the readout. The feature, which is also available on the web version of ChatGPT, adds another layer of voice-based interaction, and builds on the existing Voice Chat feature, which gives users the option of speaking conversationally with the chat bot instead of typing.

Read Aloud can speak 37 languages and can auto-detect the language of the text that it is reading. OpenAI says the feature should enhance accessibility for users with visual impairments or reading difficulties, such as dyslexia. It also hopes Read Aloud improves engagement by personalizing the interaction, while also supporting language learning.

As most people will know by now, ChatGPT is an AI-based chatbot that uses generative artificial intelligence to answer questions and provide advice on all manner of subjects. History is synced across devices, so you can see your ChatGPT interactions both on the web and on iOS devices, and it integrates the Whisper speech recognition system.

They did that (for free) after 1 year the app is online.
Meanwhile Siri is still trying to understand which contact to call.

If you ask ChatGPT if it can read aloud, it will say no. Classic disconnect between the LLM and app that wraps it.

I'm surprised the EU haven't passed a law yet requiring companies to uphold anything their AI bots say. They've done USB-C chargers, the App Store - perhaps this is next. Meanwhile, here in Japan, the government couldn't care less what chargers companies sell and their customers choose to buy - and last week some driving licence centres couldn't issue licenses on February 29th because of a leap year-related glitch.
